CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is visiting North Carolina Wednesday, planning a speech near Bank of America Stadium where President Obama will accept the Democratic Party’s nomination later this year.

Romney will host a luncheon fundraiser at 12 p.m. 9401 Glenwood Ave. in Raleigh and appear at 3:40 p.m. at A Roof with a View at 800 West Hill St. in Charlotte. He also speaks at 5 p.m. at a fundraiser at Myers Park Country Club in Charlotte.

Romney plans to give a speech Wednesday afternoon in Charlotte in what his campaign calls a “prebuttal” to Obama’s acceptance speech in September.

The Massachusetts Republican is expected to focus on whether people are better off than they were when Obama accepted the nomination four years ago.

Republican Party officials estimate Romney could raise about $1 million at the two North Carolina events.
